The description made me purchase a cup of this from Starbucks. It smelled like apple and spice and I was expecting something delicious! The tea left an unpleasant tickling sensation on the back of my tongue. I’m not sure if it was the effect of the spice, but I did not like it. The tea lacked any sort of vanilla flavor and didn’t really taste too much like apple either. The spice was almost too peppery (reminiscent of Yogi Tea’s disgusting peppery character) to enjoy. Had to dump this one.
